Lyrics
Darlin', can't you see
What losin' you has done to me?
I'm not the same girl I used to be

Have a change of heart,
Don't leave me standin' in the dark
Don't let confusion keep us apart

Come back to me,
And I'll guarantee
All the tenderness and love you'll ever need

This time I'll be sweeter,
Our love will run deeper;
I won't mess around,
I won't let you down,
Have faith in me (umm hmm)
Have faith in me

Since you've been away,
I haven't seen the light of day;
I'm lost without you,
Can't find my way

So won't you please be fair,
And let me show how much I care,
Say you'll be mine
And answer my prayer

Come back to me,
And I promise I'll be
Everything that's bright and new,
Your whole life through

This time I'll be sweeter,
Our love will run deeper;
I won't mess around,
I won't let you down,
Have faith in me (umm hmm)
Have faith in me
